News has come forward that hackers have found a way to stop the 'HD crippling' that comes with the recent bans imposed by MS on 360's. The NAND focused adaptation looks to be for tech-savvy folks and will not block the ban itself.
<blockquote>GodzIvan strikes again, this time with a diagram which simply write protects the NAND flash in the Xbox 360 by connecting WP to ground pin (if the flash type has different pinout, just find the datasheet to locate WP). This modification does not stop the ban from M$, but it prevents deletion of the HD installation certificates required by games which means you can still install them on the hard drive. In order to update the kernel this mod must be disabled; a simple switch solution comes to mind."</blockquote>
